Our Mission

Skid Row-kyo Mission:   Program and schedule events that will bring the “Spirit and Culture” of Little Tokyo, the “Creativity, Imagination and Inspiration” of the Artist District and the “Compassion and Humanity” of Los Angeles’s Skid Row District together in harmony, solidarity and unity.   


Our History

Skid Row-kyo is named after a section of downtown Los Angeles where the intersections of Little Tokyo, the Artist District and Skid Row converge.     

Skid Row-kyo Mission is a non-religious, not for profit organization based out of Little Tokyo in DTLA. Its mission is driven by the spirit of culture and community to bring people together, promoting the arts and helping those in need.

Life on skidrow...

Young resident calls the sidewalks of skidrow home.  OUR brothers and sisters survive the streets by bounding together.  We all have in common life's struggles.  SHARE  CARE  and Be THERE when others need help...

Always a NEED. "Run Outs" is a reality...

We collect bottled water, blankets, snack food, etc. to distribute to our homeless neighbors.  Sadly no matter how much we collect the NEED always exceeds the supply.  Contact us if you have something you wish to have directly distributed to our neighbors who call the sidewalks of Skid Row home.  Bottled water, blankets, packaged food, T-shirts, etc.  You collect it, we will deliver it.  We have 20+ years delivering directly to our Neighbors of Skid Row.

Little Tokyo + Arts District + Skid Row = Skid Row-kyo

Pets that live among the homeless

In 2020 we started a new  mission collecting food, grooming supplies, bedding, medicine,  etc.  for pets that live among the Homeless on Skid Row.  Let us  know if you would like to participate as a volunteer collecting and/or distribution of items.  Be on the lookout for events where we are collecting items to be distributed to Pets that live among the homeless.
